Should it be lace like a shawl or is sport weight okay?
Do you have any favorite patterns to recommend?
I'll be checking out Ravelry later, so any links there or elsewhere would be appreciated.
If I start one this fall, then maybe I can have it done for next summer.
I agree with the bamboo but don't rule out a laceweight, superwash wool which can be very absorbant as well. And as for lace...Definitely with some stockinette in the areas she wishes to cover most. There are tons of wraps and triangle shawls that would work on Ravelry.
I'm MWhite on Ravelry, too...add me to your friends
